Inspired By Stamping October Release - Chalkboard Birthday

Welcome to Day Three of our October Release Sneak Peeks at Inspired By Stamping!  This month we want you to help celebrate our birthday bash with us! Oct 6th – Oct 9th we will be having challenges each day! There are sketches and color combinations and a few other themes too.

Today we're featuring Chalkboard Birthday, a set of 28.  SO much variety offered in this set, with a crazy-good amount of possibilities!  I took this literally and created a little chalkboard birthday card.


When I was really little, chalkboards were black.  As I got a bit older, they were green.  Nowadays, kids in our town have white dry erase boards, and I've occasionally seen a rust-orange chalkboard.  Eeeww.  Who thought that was a good idea?


Look up above:  I made a little 'wooden ledge' out of patterned paper.  That's how I remember it in my classroom long, long ago.


Betcha can't wait to see how the rest of the team worked this set:

Joanna - Grace - Vicki - Tina - Rebecca - Rose - Leah - Irit - Shea - Kendra

This is one of the cutest chalkboard cards I've seen! I love that you made it green rather than black, and put it on an easel-like stand. So much fun to receive a card like this!
